will talk a little bit about president obama, bill gates already playing tribute and the u.s. secretary-general. you have just seen that moving piece by james. want to talkle and want to pay tribute and want to recognize what happened to them on that day was changed millions of lives. >> that is absolutely right. every south african, regardless of their political view, was touched by that moment. there were some on the far right who were appalled. they felt the trade by their leaders. the hard-line had been taken since 1948 and it had been abandoned. they were frankly frightened. a schoolteacher at code. white south africans utterly , allized nelson mandela of those who stood behind him. it was a dangerous moment. immediatelyears after his release were dangerous moments. time fora dangerous him to lead to persuade all south africans that they could actually feel safe in the hands of the government they had just elected. it is impossible to exaggerate the extent to which he had to more political stature. everybody around him i think acknowledged that he was head and shoulders above them.
